[prMac.com] Prague, Czech Republic - Sarsoft proudly released their free iPhone game Paddle Pong today. Paddle Pong is a two player paddle & ball game with realistic game physics and in-game bonuses that make game really enjoyable and fun. An iPad version, Paddle Pong HD, is also available.
Paddle Pong is an "old school" game, using principles, which have been known for decades. With cool graphics and a realistic physics engine, it makes the old game innovative and fun to play. Each player is controlling their paddle and tries to hit the ball and fire it into their opponent's part of the game field. Thanks to the realistic physics engine, players can change the ball direction by hitting the ball with the fast-moving paddle.
To make the game more strategic and fun, from time to time each player can grab bonuses and use them as they wish. Bonuses which shorten your opponent's paddle, change the ball's direction, accelerate the speed of the ball and even one to enlarge your own paddle are available. It is up to the player, when he will use each bonus.
"We know, that games with paddle and ball are nothing new", said Jindrich Sarson, director of Sarsoft. "But we found most of current implementations boring and not very fun. That is why Paddle Pong was born."
Paddle Pong was developed for the iPhone and the iPod, but Sarsoft has also created Paddle Pong HD for the iPad. However, it is not just a scaled up copy of the iPhone version. Paddle Pong HD adds another innovative addition. This new feature allows the player to rotate the paddle so that they can precisely control where the ball will fly into their opponents part of field. "As in real tennis, you control the racquet, ball is not flying to opponent in predictable direction. Similarly in Paddle Pong HD, you can play strategically and surprise your opponent in every ball exchange."
